Connections Program for High-Risk Infants and Families

This rotation allows interns to gain experience working as part of the inpatient consultation-liaison team at University of Colorado Hospital in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). The hospital is a tertiary care facility and brings in patients from the local community, the state of Colorado and the surrounding 7-state region.

UCH has a 50-bed Level III NICU that serves families from the metro Denver area, as well as the 7-state region. Clinicians on the team work with infants, families, and medical providers to promote health and developmental outcomes of infants and family engagement.
